Table 2 : Interpretations of rule requirements for the locations and number of points to be measured

A) SYSTEMATIC MEASUREMENTS
ITEM INTERPRETATION FIGURE
Selected plates on deck, tank top, bottom, “Selected” means at least a single point on one No figure
double bottom and wind-and-water (for all out of three plates, to be chosen on representa-
unit types) tive areas of average corrosion

All deck, tank top and bottom plates and At least two points on each plate to be taken No figure
wind-and-water strakes (for all units types ) either at each 1/4 extremity of plate or at repre-
sentative areas of average corrosion
Transverse section Refer to the definition given in Ch 2, Sec 2, Surface unit: Fig 1 (single hull) and
[2.2.5] of the Ship rules. Fig 2 (double hull)
One point to be taken on each plate. Both web For pontoon of column-stabilized
and flange to be measured on longitudinals. unit and TLP: Fig 11
For unit with cargo tank older than 10 years of
age:
within 0,1D (where D is the ship’s moulded
depth) of the deck and bottom at each trans-
verse section to be measured, every longitudi-
nal and girder is to be measured on the web and
face plate, and every plate is to be measured at
one point between longitudinals

Transverse rings (1) At least two points on each plate in a staggered Surface unit: Fig 3 (single hull) and
pattern and two points on the corresponding Fig 4 (double hull)

the first plate below deck. Additional points in unit and TLP: Fig 12
way of curved parts. At least one point on each
of two stiffeners between stringers / longitudinal
girders

Bulkheads on units other than: “Selected bulkheads” means at least 50% of the Fig 5 for general bulkhead
• oil storage (2) bulkheads For pontoon of column-stabilized
• chemical storage (2) unit and TLP: Fig 13
• liquefied gas storage (2)
Selected internal structure such as floors The internal structural items to be measured in Fig 6

cargo area
One section of deck plating for the full Two single points on each deck plate (to be No figure

transverse section concerned
All cargo hold hatch covers and coamings Including plates and stiffeners Fig 7 for units fitted with hold hatch
covers and coamings
Girth belt It is applicable for column-stabilized units and Column section: Fig 14 and Fig 15
TLP. It represent the sectional and rings of the Node junction (ring type): Fig 16
main structural element. It is a section for pon-
toon. It is an elevation for column. It is a main
framing for upper hull.
On section of the girth belt, one point to be
taken on each plate. Both web and flange to be
measured on longitudinals.
On ring of the girth belt, at least two points on
each plate in a staggered pattern and two points
on the corresponding flange where applicable.
Minimum 4 points on the first plate below deck.
Additional points in way of curved parts. At
least one point on each of two stiffeners
between stringers/girders.
(1) Transverse rings means all transverse material appearing in a cross-section of the unit’s hull, in way of a double bottom floor,
vertical web and deck transverse.
